The Reverend Fergus Butler-Gallie is a young curate in the Church of England who once accidentally appeared on Only Connect.


His first book, A Field Guide to the English Clergy: A Compendium of Diverse Eccentrics, Pirates, Prelates and Adventurers; all Anglican, Some Even Practising, is a witty set of portraits of the rich and strange collection of God-fearing (and not so Godfearing)
Church leaders.


He holds a Bachelor's degree in History from the University of Oxford and a Bachelor's degree in Theology from the University of Cambridge. He is (according to his own taxonomy) a Bon Viveur first and foremost, with a soupçon of roguishness and prodigality. Fergus will be 'in conversation' with David Parker from The Canterbury Auction Galleries, sponsors of the Talks.
